Chinchillas

Neutering

If your chinchillas are all male, it’s best to neuter them to avoid aggression.

Quick Tip

Chinchillas communicate through hiccupping noises, chirps and squeaks.

Aggressive behaviour can also occur in mixed groups – as can unwanted pregnancies – so neutering the males is still a good idea. In all-female groups, the question of neutering doesn’t arise.

Did you know?

Chinchillas don't pant or sweat which means they are prone to heat exhaustion.

Did you know?

Chinchillas have lots of beautiful, thick and soft hair (not forgetting those beautiful bushy tails!). Their hair follicles contain more than 50 hairs whilst humans have around 1-3.

Quick Tip

Chinchillas need lots of Timothy hay in their diet. Hay is naturally abrasive and helps to wear their teeth down.
